These are the top three totals on Wednesday’s NBA Odds. Go inside before making any of your NBA picks today and profit from this insightful and enjoyable betting preview.

Atlanta Hawks vs Toronto Raptors
These NBA Eastern Conference rivals have seen both of their meetings stay under the total this season. There was only a combined 191 points scored per game. Atlanta struggled mightily on the offensive end during those two contests, averaging 91 points scored per outing, and shooting a poor 39.5%.

Atlanta and Toronto have both done a nice job on the defensive end of the floor during recent outings. Atlanta has allowed 98 points or less in eleven of its last seventeen games. The Hawks have held their opponents to a combined 40.1% shooting during their previous four games. Toronto has allowed 94 points or less in five of their previous eight games. The Raptors have also shot just 42.3% from the field during its last five games.

Toronto has converted on 36.9% of their three point attempts this season. Atlanta is 15-5 (75%) under the total during this 2015-2016 NBA campaign, when facing an opponent that’s making 36% or more of its three point shots for the season. The Hawks are a terrible rebounding team, and that’s evident by their -6 per game differential. Toronto is 10-1 (90.9%) under the total this season when facing an opponent that has a -3 or worse rebound per game differential. Those eleven contests averaged just a combined 186 points scored per game.

Relative to the current total, I like this game to be a low scoring affair, and one of my Wednesday NBA picks will concur with that prediction.

New York Knicks vs. Dallas Mavericks
New York has gone 13-3 (81.3%) under the total in its last sixteen games played. They’re also 12-1 (92.3%) under the number during their previous thirteen games versus NBA Western Conference opponents.

Dallas is coming off a 97-88 win at Denver as a 2.0 point underdog in their previous game. They’ve gone 10-1 (90.9%) under the total this season, following up a straight up win as an underdog in their last outing.

The current NBA odds at JustBet.com provides me with an optimal number to make this specific wager.

Miami Heat vs. Los Angeles Lakers
Los Angeles has seen four of its previous five games go over the total. Their shoddy defensive play during those contests was a major contributor to the high scoring results. The Lakers allowed 111.8 points per game, their opponents shot 50.7%, and its foes also converted on an alarming 42.1% of its three point attempts.

Miami has gone over the total in six straight away games, and there was a combined 213 points scored per contest. Miami has shot the ball extremely well during their previous five games overall. During that time frame, they made a stellar 52.1% of its shots, and also converted on a very respectable 37.3% from three point territory. Unfortunately for Miami, they also allowed their opponents to make 41.0% of its three point shots during that five game period.
